In an effort to get coffee into your bloodstream as fast as possible, two Northeastern students have invented the CoffeeBar. The all-natural, gluten-free, vegan, and presumably Goop-approved snack is made with an entire cup of Fair Trade coffee, and promises to make your beans even more portable. But to really do this thing right, the guys need some dollar bills, which is why they're stumping on Kickstarter for coffee cash flow.
The good news is that Johnny Fayad and Ali Kothari have met their basic goal of $10,000. Mocha latte-flavored CoffeeBars will be packaged and pressed into the jittery hands of their donors, but the partners have set their sights on larger goals. Now that they most definitely have the public's attention (they're at $27,777), they're looking to blow out their business with new CoffeeBar flavors and all-new products that will keep you energized throughout the day without slowly killing you. Be part of the edible coffee revolution by donating before November 6th, and make sure you're really smug about it to your fake coffee KIND bar-lovin' friends.
